This year’s Bristol Healthy Schools Awards launches next Monday today. The awards are run in partnership with Bristol Food Connections to showcase and celebrate the healthy ways food is grown, cooked and baked in many Bristol schools, in a bid to encourage young people of all ages across Bristol to get cooking.

The 2015 awards have a focus on savoury products and recognise the changes made to the school curriculum since last September, which now ensure all Key Stage 1-3 children receive cooking lessons.

Lorna Knapman, Festival Director for Bristol Food Connections, said: “Bristol Food Connections is delighted to partner with Bristol Healthy Schools on this initiative. Inspiring children of all ages to get cooking and growing lies at the heart of our values and this competition is a brilliant way of engaging with schools and families. We had some brilliant entries in 2014 and we look forward immensely to developing the programme for 2015.”

Last year’s finalists were selected from the primary and secondary categories then invited to a ‘cook off’ at Bordeaux Quay. In true ‘Master Chef’-style the judges wandered in and out of the kitchen throughout the preparation and cooking, tasting, monitoring waste and asking questions.

Competition forms have been emailed to all Bristol schools and will soon appear on the Bristol Healthy Schools ( and Bristol Food Connections ( websites to download.

To find out more and download an application form visit or or email or phone 0117 922 3759.

Don’t forget to save the date for Bristol Food Connections taking place across the whole city between 1st and 9th May 2015
